IT WILL be a piece of cake for one Redditch runner raising money for the Multiple Sclerosis Society.

Betty O'Gorman is holding a a free tea party with home made cakes to fund the charity's work ahead of her ninth Great North Run later this month.

The event takes place at St Benedict's Social Club in Rowan Road, Batchley tomorrow (Saturday) from 1pm until 4pm, where everyone is invited to try a tasty treat and chat with family and friends.

Donation buckets will be placed around the venue where guests can give as little or as much as they want.

Betty, who will be running alongside her niece who suffers from the condition, said she wanted a unique way of raising money without putting pressure on people to donate.

"This way people can come and have a lovely afternoon and enjoy some delicious cakes and make a small donation. It's a nice way of getting the community together too."

For those who cannot attend the event visit www.justgiving.com/betty-ogorman to sponsor Betty.
